Tips and tricks

Easy Defence

When on defence, pick the Suicide defence and take control of either one of the 2 nose guards. Hold down the Turbo button and direction yourself at the quarterback before the ball is even snapped. On virtually every single play, you'll blast through the line and nail the quarterback before he can even move regardless of whether or not the play is a run or pass, simply because the offensive line never bothers to block you when this trick is performed.

Easily Block Kicks

When the computer is going for a field goal or extra point, take control of one of the defensive players all the way in the back of the field goal block formation. When the ball is snapped, run at the long snapper, then turbo at the kicker and jump. The glitch comes in the form of the long snapper never bothering to try blocking you, and you'll be able to block virtually any kick with ease.
